Dynamics-aerosol-chemistry-cloud interactions in West Africa
Past Events
Sun 23rd April 2017 to Fri 28th April 2017
EGU 2017 Vienna with DACCIWA session
Convener: Céline Mari
Co-Conveners: John Marsham , Peter Hill , Véronique Yoboué
This session is open to a wide range of contributions on atmospheric sciences in Sub-Saharan Africa, with a focus on tropical regions.

This includes work based on field observations (campaign, long-term), satellite remote sensing and numerical models as well as work targeting socio-economic implications of atmospheric phenomena.

Contributions are invited on various relevant topics, related to Sub-Saharan Africa, including:
  • dynamical meteorology;
  • atmospheric chemistry, aerosols and associated health impacts
  • cloud microphysics and precipitation
  • climate variability and change
  • radiative processes
One focus of the session is the ongoing DACCIWA (Dynamics-Aerosol-Chemistry-Cloud Interactions over West Africa) project funded by the European Commission under FP7. DACCIWA organized a large international field campaign in June-July 2016 in southern West Africa.

Young scientist/student presentations are especially encouraged and we will reserve several oral units for such papers in this session.
